Cornell users of Concur will soon have a simpler, streamlined experience when creating and submitting expense reports. These advancements are being made to increase the user-friendliness and accessibility of the site, addressing many pain points. The new experience will begin rollout in September 2018 and will apply only to the web-based interface.
Overall, the appearance of the Expense module will be cleaner and somewhat leaner, with easier-to-read text, fewer icons, and more prominent action buttons. Completing tasks will become less confusing, alerts will be more obvious, activities will flow better. Users will see more options for working with expenses and receipts. Read on for some highlights of the new interface. We’ll keep you informed as we learn more.
